What Bloggers are Saying about Slightly South of Simple:

“[I]f I recommend one book to you this year (so far), let it be Slightly South of Simple for your first beach read. The darling and charming Kristy Woodson Harvey’s latest novel is the definition of a summer novel. I loved it almost as I love her.”–Jessica, Simply Bedazzled

Slightly South of Simple

What People are Saying about Slightly South of Simple

“Harvey’s devotion to realistic character development pays off by the end of the novel, which provides clear resolutions to some plots and leaves other hanging in a way that practically begs for a sequel…because Harvey is meticulous about closing out each character’s arc in a satisfying way….SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE is so warm, inviting and real…”—Bookpage

There’s nothing like a stunning vignette and a clear blue sea to make us dream of the beach. 

Alyssa Rosenheck

 

And when we dream of the beach, what else to we dream of? Why, beach reading, of course!

Chango & Co

We can’t believe that Slightly South of Simple is releasing tomorrow officially. It will be on the shelves at your favorite local bookstores, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target, on Amazon and wherever books are sold. 

Chango & Co

 

These gorgeous images capture that perfect relaxed beach feel–the one I hope readers also get from Slightly South of Simple–perfectly. 

Pink and blue is a favorite, classic color combination, one that we were so excited to see on my new book cover!

Alyssa Rosenheck Photography

 

The pictures really don’t do it justice. This is one of those books we’d buy just for the cover! (Even if I didn’t happen to write it…)

Andrew J. Howard Interiors

This cozy beach house room is just the kind of place we’d like to spend a pretty post-spring break afternoon. 

Summer Thornton

Today we’re in Kinston, NC at a fabulous home, celebrating Slightly South of Simple and raising money for the local Lenoir County SPCA.

Jenkins Interiors

 

Even though there’s nothing we’d rather be doing than supporting a cause close to our hearts, this picture is awfully tempting…

Alyssa Rosenheck Photography

If you’re looking ahead to your own beach reading…

This is your last day to pre-order Slightly South of Simple before it releases tomorrow! 

Kristy Hard at Work

What are the chances I would have worn a hot pink dress in my author photo? Maybe I was trying to conjure a pink-and-blue book cover!

Slightly South of Simple

Thank you, thank you to all of our wonderful, loyal Design Chic readers. We love seeing you every day, getting your emails and comments and hearing your thoughts. And I am especially grateful of all of your support of my writing career. You have all just rallied around me from the first day. I hope you love this one, the first book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, as much as I loved writing it!

 Pinterest-worthy. That’s what we’d say about Marshall Watson Interior Design

With all the choices of things to pin out there these days, that’s a pretty high compliment.

But these gorgeous rooms and outdoor spaces by these user-talented designers are ones we want to remember, take inspiration from and come back to again and again.

If we weren’t already having Spring fever (which we are, big time…) then this porch would certainly inspire it. From the lush landscape to the beautiful touches, every element is utter perfection.

These banana leaf chairs are some of our favorites! In fact, we have them in the Beaufort playroom!

Dining al fresco has never looked so good. Sunflowers add a cheerful burst of color.

Dark furniture and warm tones make this light-filled room feel super cozy.

Just… wow. Does it get more breathtaking?

You know we love designers who are versatile, and the eclectic range of looks here is phenomenal!

Soft colors and comfortable textures combine here to create a room that is both comfortable and chic.

We just love the feel of this beautiful home!

This is the kind of space where we would like to be dining tonight–or any night. A beautiful vision, perfectly conceived… Well, we’d say that’s what Marshall Watson Interiors is all about! 

For more work from this fabulous designer, you don’t want to miss his new book,  The Art of Elegance: Classic Interiors, available now!
